World Masters Course preview

Our friends at the Alberta World Cup Society will host the next Masters World Cup cross-country ski races in Canmore, planned for March 2022. Pandemic-permitting, of course.

These are the same folks who host the World Cup races when they come to Canmore. Expect a world-class event, in a world class venue in one of the most beautiful mountain destinations in the world.

It's still early, and many details are yet to be worked out, but why not mark your calendars for March 3-11, 2022, and start dreaming and planning now?

Course Preview Video and Uphill Skate Skiing Technique

We made a course preview video, to showcase what it's like to ski in Canmore and highlight a section of the 10K/15K race courses.

The video details one of the more challenging climbs and includes a technique explanation for adjusting Offset technique (V1 Skate) for steep climbs.

Masters World Cup 2023 again in Seefeld (AUT)

 This year, the World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association had received an application from Estonia for the Masters World Cup 2023 for the first time. Unfortunately, the organizers of the Tartu Ski Marathon were forced to withdraw their application for the year 2023 and postpone it to a later year to be determined due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fortunately, a well-known Bavarian organiser stepped in at short notice: the SC Monte Kaolino Hirschau, Germany.The experienced team organised the MWC with 1070 participants in Seefeld (AUT) as early as 2003, as well as many national and international events since then.

Therefore, in 2023, the MWC will be held on the expansive Seefeld cross-country ski trail network again, which has been expanded significantly since the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in 2019.  The 3rd week of March is planned as the date.
